Manchester-based PropTech firm marks 1.5m sq ft milestone


Leading PropTech firm, Node Technologies (Node), has now activated in excess of 1.5 million sq ft, as it accelerates installation and management of its smart connectivity infrastructure across the UK.

Headquartered in Manchester, the properties span key regional locations including Manchester itself, as well as Leeds, Birmingham, Glasgow, Liverpool and Cambridge.

The business has an additional 1.05 million sq ft of space in delivery through H2 and a further 750,000 sq ft of space pending in its nationwide pipeline.

Key Node schemes include Birmingham's 103 Colmore Row, recent winner of BCO Midlands' ‘Best Commercial Workplace' and Cadworks, Glasgow, the city's first net zero office development.

Christian Anderton, founder and CEO at Node said:

"Buildings can only truly deliver on their smart capabilities if they have fit-for-purpose smart infrastructure at their core. This milestone is evidence that the built environment is increasing its commitment to be better and to design for customer service.

"Connectivity and enabling smart tech is critical from an asset-management perspective. Adoption of a fully-integrated, secure solution that supports operational technology requirements and drives net zero targets is a decision that forward-thinking landlords are embracing."

Node designs to or ahead of WiredScore requirements, optimising and future-proofing the principles of building certification.

The Node managed solution removes the requirement for all tenant-level wayleaves, enhances occupational strategy and improves an asset's sustainability by 80 – 90 per cent in relation to fibre.

Node works with leading institutional, private equity and PropCo investors and developers to implement the smart solution into landmark assets in key regional office locations.
